On Your Mark: Challenging the Conventions of Grading and Reporting by Thomas R. Guskey asserts the need to align grading and reporting practices to truly reflect what students are learning in F-12 classrooms. The changes this book outlines might be controversial - adjusting any system that has been in place for centuries will cause tension - yet we owe it to our students to make sure grades accurately communicate their progress and help them improve. Rather than continuing down the wrong path out of delusion, fear, or tradition, we must use research to boldly move forward and better serve our students.


K-12 teachers and administrators will:

  • Identify the purpose of grading and make sure school and classroom visions, practices, and policies support it

  •  Implement research-based grading and reporting practices that promote accurate, useful accounts of student learning

  • Understand why traditional practices, such as grading on the curve and offering plus or minus grades, don't fully report students' academic performance to stakeholders
